"i tried to run away from one... [but] didnt make it"
apparently you were 'caught', meaning that the lesson was imparted;
what you'd learned is unclear.
the "pack of cats" reminds me of the trope about the difficulty of
"herding cats", since they act independently from one another.
the lesson given to you may have dealt with maintaining an
independent frame of mind, even within a group of friends...
or maybe it involved the motivation for you to have frightened
those creatures for no apparent reason(?).
the theme of these dreams is that you're learning from the
unusually endowed creatures of that 'alternate reality'. their
lessons for you would likely involve the 'natural forces' of life,
since that's where your experiences would intersect. [humans,
on their own, might explore 'otherworldly' ideas together.]
the cats of dream one return as a single cat in dream two,
and reappear as a white cougar in dream three. the 'cat
attack' idea of 1 & 2 may hint at a confrontation scene to
be developing for #3, which could be warning you to be clear
on your motivations and intent in the near term future, where
a meeting with the bear is (potentially) 'some buildings' away.
